Yarra Valley Get-away

July 2019

To begin our mini-honeymoon, we went to a Japanese food buffet, Okami. They were ok, only the waiting time for the food to be served was quite long. Then we drove to a secluded place in Yarra Valley called Deville Healseville and spent a couple of days there. We used their spa every night to relax.

On our first day, we went around the town, looked for a church, viewpoint and we found this interestingly named restaurant called the Innocent Bystander.  We were hoping for a juicier story behind the name but unfortunately, it was all about wines. The owner wanted to make people’s wine experience more accessible and more enjoyable for people, hence, they decided to be a ‘bystander’ instead of a competitor.

To enjoy the trip better, despite we were on cheap mode, we hired winter wears that cost us $108. We tried to convince ourselves that we paid for the experience. We did.

On our third day, we went to the Chocolate Factory. Of course, it was crowded. The only thing I enjoyed there was the free-taste of Choco. They were yummy of course, but a little bit pricey in my opinion. Then we drove around Yarra Glen. Then, we found Kinglake’s Mason Waterfalls.

It was a short trail walk from the parking space to the waterfall’s viewpoint. It was a small one, unlike those of the pictures from the internet. I just enjoyed the fact that T and I walked together using a trail. =) We then had Indian Food for dinner.

The next day was checkout, sadly.
